Art Gallery
“The charming Villa Hakasalmi is located next to Finlandia Hall near Töölönlahti bay. This elegant building retains a tangible sense of the Empire style era and is one of the few of its kind remaining in Helsinki. The best-known resident of Villa Hakasalmi was Aurora Karamzin (1808-1902), who lived there until her death. Because of this, the building is also referred to as the Karamzin Villa. The villa is today a branch of the Helsinki City Museum with changing exhibitions. An idyllic cafe is located on the courtyard, serving coffee, snacks and a daily changing lunch.”
